April 7, 2015. Pope Francis has appointed Ernesto José Romero Rivas, O.F.M. to be Vicar Apostolic of Tucupita (Venezuela). The Pope has also appointed Vincent Aind to be Bishop of Bagdogra (India).
Pope Francis met with the members of the Congregation for Catholic Education. During his remarks, the Pope focused on the importance of school as a place for encounter and dialogue, since Catholic schools also enroll non-believers as students.
"Catholic Education is one of the greatest challenges for the Church, which is committed to carrying out the New Evangelization, in a historic and cultural context that is in constant transformation.”
Pope Francis also highlighted the need to constantly train teachers. "You cannot improvise,” the Pope said. But he added that, "teaching is an act of love.”
